  1. Hi Gang, I'm in the middle of a move right now but should be done by the first of MAY. I'll be looking forward to seeing everyone again wherever the location.

Mike May is going to be a really BUSY month for me as far as Saturdays are concerned but Sunday afternoons should be OK, with the exception of the 23rd. I'd be more than happy to chip in on the rental fee's for a shelter anywhere. The GAME idea is great! The opposition to State Park caching concerns me very much... do you really think there is a danger there? If so...WV Cachers should have a voice in the matter. I've ran into RED TAPE GALORE with the National Parks in the past (different circumstances) but haven't heard anything about the State Parks. I think the main concern is communications, no matter what the activity, no one likes to be taken for granted. There needs to be an avenue to pass information back and forth if there is a real danger of caching being prohibited in state parks. It can harm our sport and the enjoyment of the outdoors. The Feds are more "preservation" oriented, the state is more "use" oriented.
  3. The first cache in WV was http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_details.aspx?ID=1008, which was hidden almost two years ago on February 25, 2001. Thanks...I'd really like to visit it sometime. I view it as sort of the "Holy Grail" of caches. I'll look it up and try to visit sometime. BTW/ Geat job on the publicity on the Daily Mail. I'll be looking forward to reading the story next week.
  4. Hi Gang, Anyone know the first cache hid in WV ???
  5. Hi Gang, Just wondering...anyone know where and when the first cache in WV was hid?

Guess the fries got a little hot. LOL. Before I left the lights were back on and there were people inside cleaning it appeared. Hi Ak....I was there too. I was just going into Wallmart when the fire trucks arrived. The fries should be well done now. Hope no one was injured. I've got a confession to make. After talking to some younger
  7. Hi Folks, Anyone know how to search the property deeds for an area? I need to know the coordinates for a place in Kanawha County. Can anyone do this? or do you need to be a lawyer or real estate agent?
  8. quote:Originally posted by Bookworm3:Hi All, I have checked this forum a couple of times and I am glad to see some WV cachers talking. I usually go caching with my two sons and my dog. Hi WV... I'm the guy that left the pictures and the TB "Man in the Wild" in the cache there. Do you know the park well? I think I remember a couple of miles of trails being out there. My sister lives in Parkersburg. I'll be visiting again soon. Maybe we can hike in the area.
  9. quote:Originally posted by WVAK47:Sunday Jan 25, 2003 at 15:00 (for those that attend church or sleep late, the latter being me) at Micky Ds on South Ridge. Hey...the 25th is a Saturday! Sunday is the 26th... Sunday is fine for me but I will be working if it's a Saturday. Never been to Micky D's...I assume it's a resturant with some good stuff for the kids too. What's the menu there? It will be important if the little ones are hungry. I'll be the guy carrying a "Duck" under his arm. The Duck likes Bud Light real well. I'll have to keep my eye on him.
  10. quote:Originally posted by WVAK47:LOL. I never dreamed of causing all this. I love the interest in the idea. You guys make me feel like I did something good for a change. Now, when this all started it was to get a few locals together to shoot the breeze. I agree with MeeMaw that Feb may be too cold for a hunting party. For what I had in mind to start with it would be fine because we could always go inside somewhere (I know boring) Oh and is there any other way to hunt for caches? I thought it was an unwritten law that it had to be really cold, raining, snowing, muddy or all of the above. I have not came home warm and dry from one yet, and I LOVE IT. Back to the subject now. I do love all the interest in this, but I am scared that many will be disappointed. What do you guys say to maybe two events, or waiting a little later in the year and having one bigger one when the weather breaks some. I want to meet all of you, I truly do. But this is getting too large for me to handle at this point. I know many have offered to help and I THANK YOU SO MUCH. But I don't want to put my idea off on others to take care of. I will be happy to help all I can if you guys want to go this big. I think it is AWESOME to get this much response but a little overwhelming for me too. LOL. So let me know what you want me to do and I will do my best. Feb is a bad time of year for me with my current job (inventory ). March would be better for me but worse for others. This is just really hard to do. Now if you locals would like to meet me for dinner/cup of coffee somewhere that would be WAY COOL, and maybe we could discuss in further detail what to do and when. To let you know I am not backing out or even trying to. I would love to help put on a KICK ARS meeting here in Almost Heaven, but I feel it is more than I can handle now. The Important Things Are Always Simple and The Simple Things Are Always Hard. I notice that most of the posts are in the lower Kanawha Valley area. How about..., just as a beginner, meeting at McDonalds at Southridge or something, just to put the names, people, and places togeather? Sort of a "hello there --how are you" meeting. After meeting on Sunday afternoons for several times...some caches could be planned out for when the weather warms up a bit. Little Creek Park has some great picinic area's or even Coonskin Park near the Charleston Airport. Both those area's are large enough to do some quick caching. After getting to know each other...a formal club could begin to take shape. I could see things taking off a bit after 3 or 4 get togeathers. I think it's important to take a few little steps before jumping into bigger event. The BIG event could still be in early March or something. That way the people from out a ways could do some planning to be there! Pick any Sunday afternoon, and I'll be there. I could even be there on a Saturday morning , assuming I'm off that week, in time to do a quick cache after the meeting. If I can't catch the first one, I could catch the one the week afterward. I like the NIKE idea.
  11. Can't imagine driving to this one at all... Would have been "ONE TUFF DRIVE" From any direction ! quote:Originally posted by cache-potato:I shall be there regardless of what it takes. (now that i have quit haha) Thanks for the email Eli. I haven't checked the forums for quite some time. (heard you had to buy forum space from the NJ people) I have all the makings for another cache. Just having trouble finding a flat hike for MITW! Food for thought: Sutton Lake is the GEOgraphical center of the state. Cache on ! --CP
  12. A great idea...I work every other Saturday so any Sunday afternoon would be fine. Please let me know when the day and time is going to be.
